    Water Prep

    Great Find! I’ve been needing to do this to my Mom’s 4Runner & now I think I’ll tackle the Pathy as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    What did you do to your Pathfinder today?

    Stripped off my load bars, rail mounted Yakima Basket Case, all the rail slides & the rails themselves in preparation for mounting a full length Rola V-Tech rack. I haven’t been able to adequately access the roof under that Yakima basket for about 14 years. I’m going to clean it all up, wax it & remount the rails. I’m still working on the rack mount. I’ll use the rail slides & conduit clamps but after seeing another R50 with just those (Pathy_02), I feel it needs another 1cm - 1” elevation to be able to put cam strap hooks around the lower bars & that will also allow the sunroof to function without interference. Something tells me that I’ll be dealing with wind noise once I do that.

    XENON HID Headlights

    Do I see that those came with side marker lights as well?
  4. hawairish, you are knocking it out with NPORA comments this last month. As you can imagine, I’m sooo gratified to see all the Power Valve warnings as that is my saddest auto event to date & has stained my soul. Can you post the links to those IACV/ECU issues, I don’t know that I’ve done those.

    From wreck to riches

    Welcome! That’s a beautiful truck. I really like the white (Look up “stioc” on Expedition Portal sometime). I believe I’m the guy hawairish is referring to about the power valve screws. It’s only a couple hours work or 2-3* at a machanic. Cost me a lovelingly maintained mint engine so definitely attend to it ASAP. Once that’s done, it will last FOREVER.I’ve had mine 16 years & plan on another decade.

    Pathfinder Pest Control. Tried a new way to kill off the moles who are destroying my yard....we’ll see if it works?

    I broke one of those little trim tabs in the upper trim just inside the rear hatch. Nissan said there was one left in the country & it was in Massachusetts & ~$7. I passed-JY it is!

    Check out, Pathy_02 (That_Black_Pathfinder on IG) He really should have done a write-up. Great Project & I think the first to do it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Dual battery setup

    Oh yeah, I get that!

    In-Channel Window Deflector Vent Visors

    Great little write up. Maybe Admin can sticky it or make it its own thread! Nice job.

    Dual battery setup

    Are those in series, as opposed to isolated?

    Dual battery setup

    Best set up I’ve seen is by XPLOx4 https://xplorx4.shutterfly.com/437 “I installed dual batteries for emergency starting purposes, since I occasionally drained the main battery during long camping trips while using my 12v refrigerator. The main battery is an X2Power SLI34AGMDPM battery, and the emergency starting battery is a compact Odyssey PC680. The batteries are kept in isolation using a Hellroaring battery isolator, except when using a dash-mounted switch to connect the two together.”

    '02 door key lock question

    You should be able to buy a fob for $17 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KTJ9I46/?coliid=IM163KMC8BJ24&colid=2TXANA5SUZVXM&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it Programming the fob is free-you follow a simple set of instructions with the truck & fob. If you got a newly programmed chip in a key, that was a reasonable deal@~$100. Stealerships usually charge ~$200-250. If you get a flip key version, you can dig the chip out of your key & put it in the fob/flipkey.

    Which Light Bar to Choose and How to Install it?

    Hawairish, as always, great write up. You clearly are avoiding some other job or project. Seriously though, this should get stickied or put into an electrical thread. I’m going to want to read it again later & others might want to see it too. Can we see if an Admin can fix it.

    Finally LPD 3’d my old engine & stored it before the rainy season (Oct-June) started.

    '02 door key lock question

    Not that it solved the lock cylinder issue but remotes are super cheap & easy as pie to program. The expensive thing is the chip in your key for the ignition.

    '02 door key lock question

    It should function just as you described for your ‘01

    XENON HID Headlights

    Looks good! Can’t wait to see the end product

    Which Light Bar to Choose and How to Install it?

    2 things worth noting: *Complaints about significant wind noise on roof light bars. *Blinding light from reflection off the hood. Alternatives to consider: Light bar integrated into forward grill (eliminates wind noise & reflection issue) Ditch lights (give better lateral light for looking for camp sites, forest roads, etc. & easy to mount from hood hinges with minimal fabrication)
